Thanks everybody for all the info. I'm starting to think about college, so it was nice to read this thread.

Also....Space Chicks Rock!!!

There are just so few space chicks. If I saw a girl wearing the "Space Chicks Rock" shirt, I would definitely fall for her. I would have to kill myself if I didn't ask her out.

hehe, you're the only space chick i've ever talked to- online or any way else. you deserve it :D. some of my friends have a passing interest- namely the girlfriend of the only other guy i know who's a space enthusiast, but that doesn't really count.

Hopefully (for you guys) the ratio well improve some in the next few years... we'll just have to wait and see. I know lots of girls into aviation, but not any that are into space :(

I actually know several definitely space chicks.

Although only one of them works for NASA. And only some of them have a degree in aero.

I mostly treasure that my wife understands my love of space and flight, even if she doesn't always share my love of it. She was a nice, supportive wife and went with me to SpaceShipOne's first spaceflight.

I'm a programmer by trade, and it's the exact same thing. Of somewhere over twenty programmers, we've got three women.

lol, i guess if you count people over 30 (i don't), then i know a couple- both engineers. i agree wholly with that there are two few chick programmers too: i know several girls who like programming and several who are good at it, but only one who is both, and she's more of a gamer than a programmer, lol (again not counting people over 30).

eraurocktchick87,

You are a senior, right? If so, then you start college this fall. Are you going to Embry Riddle?

Im planning on going there. I'm a sophmore now, so it will still be a few years until I start. I am now beginning to try to figure out how to pay for it, and what exactly to major and minor in.

I've done alot of research recently about Embry, and I have decided to major in Aerospace Engineering and specialize in the astronautics, and I would like to minor in flight. I'de love to learn how to fly, and if I decide to take it, I will if I can figure out how to afford it.

Yup, I'm a senior, and I will be at Riddle in the fall. I was going to do Aero. Eng. as my major, but I've since decided to change my major to Engineering Physics instead.... I suppose my reasoning for that was because in EP you get to take all of the astrophysics and quantum physics classes and those aren't included in the curriculum for AE... All of my friends at Riddle have said I'm nuts, because thats the hardest possible major I could take, and I agree, I'm nuts, but it has always been fun being insane :P

I'd love to learn how to fly, but without the flight, I'll already have over $60000 in loans to pay back, so I think flight might be a little out of my reach :(

Well good luck in Engineering Physics. You're right it does look tough, but its good to challenge yourself and fun to be insane. :P Are you going to get a Masters in Space Science also?

Hrm.... I could point Arobie to GT....... But Cathleen is a mod....

Well, lemme say this:

http://www.ssdl.gatech.edu/

Same price as ERAU, plus some excellent Freshman scholarship opportunities. A beautiful school, no car required (buses will take you *anywhere*), and has the advantages of both a fairly small school and a fairly big city.

Okay, that's enough of a spiel.

Arobie, good luck -- and you've got good taste in picking your major (that's my pick as well).

[edit]Almost forgot: GT has a flight club that will teach you to fly. I suspect that membership and training fees are minimal.[/edit]
